“When I Grow Up” Animated Short by Colin Hesterly
Read the comment from the director and author, then watch the short and compare and contrast his ideas to yours when you were groping up.
“As a kid my imagination was my closest friend, and I spent a lot of time dreaming about my future. I wanted to explore the jungles like Indiana Jones, or search the oceans alongside Captain Nemo. Over time I caught on that these people were just fictional characters but that spirit of imagination and adventure never left. I eventually had to “grow up” and become an adult. So I pursued a career that was founded on the ideas of exploration and imagination. I chose to become a filmmaker. “
